Working as a photographer since 2000, I have been lucky to have travelled and photographed extensively around the UK. I have always been drawn to scenes that give a sense of the country's deep weave. Scenes that capture the significance of homes, industry, infrastructure and landscape. The features and relationships that underpin, sustain and characterise a country.
I started working in earnest on this series around 2014 when the Scottish Independence referendum followed by Brexit quickly pushed nationhood into becoming a very pressing issue. The photographs take a broad ranging look at the accumulated environment of the UK; its long history and tradition, its development and absorption of change, its social links and boundaries, the common bind of its landscape.
At a precarious historical time for the UK ‘kingdom’ hopes to offer a perspective on these themes which reaches beyond the current politicking.
